Disgraced Ex-FBI Agent Says 9/11 Was Nothing Compared to January 6th
(RepublicanDaily.org) – A fired FBI agent who conspired against former President Donald Trump has made some alarming claims about American democracy. Peter Strzok, who led the investigation into claims Trump had colluded with Russia to win the election, is now saying the January 6 riot was a bigger threat to the US than 9/11 — and he wants federal agencies on “a war footing” to deal with it.
While framing it against 9/11, Nicolle Wallace claims January 6 was "the deadliest attack on the U.S. capital in history."

Talking to MSNBC on October 16, Strzok agreed with host Nicole Wallace that the 2021 riot was “the deadliest attack on the US capitol in history,” then went further. He said while 9/11 was a tragedy, in the context of attacks on our democracy, “9/11 is nothing compared to January 6.”
Strzok’s argument is based on the idea the riot could have changed the way the US was governed — but that was never going to happen. Law enforcement dealt with the rioters who invaded the Capitol, Congress went on with its business and US democracy was safe. After 9/11, though, the federal government grabbed a swathe of new powers for itself.
The Department of Homeland Security was set up, establishing a massive surveillance operation against the American people. The 9/11 attacks have been used to justify mail interception and the targeting of activists, conspiracy theorists and even third-party candidates. How was a riot more of a threat to democracy than these government actions?
